Fetch a sketch challenge 5.

Morning peeps!!
wooohoooooo!! its another sunny day here in little ole lincolnshire so it should be a lovely day for the little peeps to play outside ( and me to sit on my deckchair watching and have a good colouring session!!!)

Its time for a new challenge too over on the Fetch A Sketch Challenge blog. They (...they being my gorgeous Funky Hand teamies Ruth and Jenny) are being sponsored by Funky Hand this week and I couldn't resist the chance to have a go at the sketch for them. Its such a great one and so versatile, here it is, if you click on the piccy you will be magically pootled off to the Fecth a Sketch challenge blog where you can get some more inspiration for the challenge.

I had great fun making the little toppers up at the top of my post. I used the awesome sentiment circles and toppers on the Now Thats Funky cd from Funky Hand. The sketch was oodles of fun, Thankyou team FAS!!

And here are a few piccies of what I turned my toppers into!!!! I made some cute 4x4 cards using up some scraps of paper from my Dreams Come True papercraft factory ( ...Jules will be most proud of me for using some scrappies up!!!!)

 And this cute little back to school gift bag!! oooh I like this one, saw this tutorial on Splitcoast stampers last week and totally had to have a go!!!! The paper for this one  is from the pleased to see ya colourway of the Colour Me Happy papercraft factory. (....and just to make Jules giggle...yes it took me over 30mins to find the cd that had the paper on it matching the scrap I used for my good luck topper.......)

I covered  a little memo book in matching paper and tied a little pencil to it to pop inside the bag!

So there we go!! scraps and sketches are the theme of the day!!!!!!!!! gotta join in with Jules snippets challenge with this post after being such a good girl and dipping into the scraps box (though it is still rather full so requires much more dipping...)

Just time for a cuppa before I go fetch big sis and the children, drop big sis off at work (...booo :( think she should skive and come play craftying with me instead!!!)

Have a great day peeps and don't forget to join in with the sketch challenge!!
huge hugs Lou xxxxx
